Anyone who had the previous version and did the upgrade can you give us views on the changes..Especially the battery I read on WP central some forum guys say it doubled to tripled the battery and the phone doesn't get hot anymore.

MS has not even acknowledged the problem. It's probably a "feature";).
Is not worth(your hard owned money) to be a fanatic of a brand/OS.

WP8 is a young OS and becomes better and better, Android and IOS are soooo booooring these days. You should use WP8 first and then comment.

Nokia will die, because its CEO Elop worked for Ballmer in Microsoft. Elop is a saboteur and traitor. If not him, Nokia could use Android long time ago.

Wow, disconnecting from Wi-Fi when screen was off, not being able to reject a call with SMS(had this on SGS 1!!!). Windows Phone was the most primitive phone OS! Now those are fixed, but how about the "Other" space memory leak (filing the phone internal memory over time)?

Very hard mobile market now ...

Nokia do not make much for each lumia if lumia is a dud.. microsoft might make their own windows phone 8 ..

Bright side thou ... : When windows make Windows surfaces tablet it was a dud .. (more expensive then netbook .. less capable then one).. So if microsoft make windows 8 phones.. it might be a dud to..

Nokia need to work hard to make wp8 success else sink...

If Nokia choose Android AND WP8 they could make everyone happy and would probably easily be the number 1 company bigger than Apple and Samsung...!

Nokia is digging its own grave for solely depending on WP8. Basic features like that should be available on day 1.

Nokia should adopt another OS. Android or Meego. WP is losing its charm (there isn't much to start with) as time goes.
